Faithfulness in This Digital Age Is about Establishing Priorities

Setting Priorities

It actually comes all the way down to a query of precedence. We’re not going to place the digital Pandora again in its field. Nobody goes to have the ability to reside in a computer-free or internet-free life. And even when that was potential at a person stage, that’s not what our neighbors are going to do. So we have to suppose extra maturely and extra properly about that.

I feel faithfulness within the digital age means prioritizing God’s phrase and prioritizing embodied relationship over these digital instruments. These digital instruments are useful, however the diploma to which they set the expectations and the rhythms of our day will be dangerous.

Digital Liturgies

Samuel D. James

Individuals seek for heaven in all of the fallacious locations, and the web isn’t any exception. Digital Liturgies warns readers of know-how’s damaging results and gives a satisfying various by Scripture and relaxation in God’s excellent design.

One sensible factor that I feel we will all do is we will begin the day with Scripture. We will select perhaps sooner or later per week, or one thing somewhat extra frequent, to again away from our apps and our social media accounts and pursue actual relationship with someone. Take someone out to lunch.

Primarily, we should be assembling collectively on the Lord’s Day in congregations as a result of it’s these relationships and it’s that have and that habitat that basically fortifies our hearts. It reminds us who we’re, it reminds us who our brothers and sisters in Christ are, and it fortifies us in our quest to reside properly on this age.

So I feel these are some methods, and it in the end comes all the way down to what’s fascinating our coronary heart. Are these instruments fascinating our hearts due to the promise of self-creation? Or are we actually being captivated by the message of the gospel, which is that we don’t must create ourselves, we don’t must curate our personal identification, however that the Lord tells us who we’re, and that fills us with the grace and the love that we have to love different individuals as they’re.
